King Babystar.

Does anybody else co-sleep? Bed share? Succumb to the wills of a tiny tyrant? (I can’t remember the proper terminology.)

Last year at this time, I was determined that Babystar would sleep in her crib. She disagreed. She is almost one and our house gets plenty of sleep. So this is what works for us. Ok. I’m in.

All in, in fact.

We just bought a king size bed. Babystar was getting way too kicky in her sleep and Husband was spending way too many nights in the guest room and it just seemed like the smart thing to do. Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t. But we have now spent a few nights sleeping in this ocean of a bed and we are all much happier.

The mattress and box springs and taxes were $1,583.98. We had to buy sheets and a larger lightweight summer quilt for $69.99 and $79.99. We did not buy a bed frame or bed. We decided to low-ride instead until Tiny moves into her own room. I hope she doesn’t fall out of bed, but at least it’s not a far fall anymore. Just in case.

Babystar loves her new bed.


RAISING BABYSTAR: $9,557  (I love the even number. I do not love that total!)

  1. I had to scroll back to see what jumped you from 7k-something to 9k. Yikes, but also nice! Also a reluctant bedsharer here, but it really does mean lots of delicious sleep for me, so I’m not complaining. My baby is only 6 months so I am following your baby-proofing with rapt attention/dread. 🙂
